Include a link to your project’s LFX Insights page. We will be looking for signs of consistent or increasing contribution activity. Please feel free to add commentary to add color to the numbers and graphs we will see on Insights.

Alvarium Insights Page

How many maintainers do you have, and which organizations are they from? (Feel free to link to an existing MAINTAINERS file if appropriate.)

5 active, all from Dell
What do you know about adoption, and how has this changed since your last review / since you joined the current Stage? If you can list companies that are end users of your project, please do so. (Feel free to link to an existing ADOPTERS file if appropriate.)

No active adoption by third parties at this time.

As described to TAC, integration efforts with other LF-Edge projects are in process.

How has the project performed against its goals since the last review? (We won't penalize you if your goals changed for good reasons.)
  • We did not, however, meet our goals for adoption or engagement across different partners/verticals
  • We continued making contributions to the Alvarium repos in alignment with the "Data Confidence Graph" effort presented to the TAC. This involves integration with other LF-Edge projects as well as supporting enhancements.
What are the current goals of the project? For example, are you working on major new features? Or are you concentrating on adoption or documentation?
  • Completion of the proposed LF-Edge integrated POC to demonstrate "Data Confidence Graph" concept
  • Clarify whether Attestation is a more amenable industry trend for collecting trust metadata from the lower layers of the stack.
  • Solidify on POV regarding emphasis on schema of Annotations rather than implementation (such as SDK). More flexibility needed in the schema to support different use cases, verticals.
How can LF Edge help you achieve your upcoming goals?When we complete the LF-Edge integrated POC, we would appreciate the opportunity to socialize our efforts through conferences, podcast, etc.
Do you think that your project meets the criteria for the next Stage?No
Please summarize Outreach Activities in which the Project has participated in (e.g. Participation in conferences, seminars, speaking engagements, meetups, etc.)
Are you leveraging the Technical Project Getting Started Checklist? If yes, please provide link (if publicly available).No

Please review, and update if needed, your Project entry on the Existing Project Taxonomy page, modifying the Last Updated / Reviewed date in the header.

Please share a LFX security report for your project in the last 30 days
